Chris Aceto's instruction book for bodybuilding? I recently got it from a fellow body builder and others said it was a great book. What are your thoughts on it?

Chris's stuff is ok for the basics. He tends to be a bit of a cookie cutter when it comes to diets and he is a bit overzealous on supplements... but probably a good buy for beginners.

to be honest with you i've never read one book on bodybuilding other than arnold's encyclopedia of bodybuilding... and that mostly for entertainment. That said, I think the greatest amount of knowledge can be gleened of the forums here and at other places. That and http://www.pubmed.org once you learn to use it.

If you feel you need to buy a book I'd buy a book that deals with exercise nutrition. I know one good one is Nutrition in Exercise & Sport which Dr. Layman (professor I work under) helped edit... but it is more of a biochemical book and won't give you the cookie cutter meal plan stuff... but you will learn much more from it.
